had come, to bonnie prince charlie. she suggested that the portrait of the man on horseback was actually none other than bonnie prince charlie. now, i would dearly love that to have been the case because i work here at the foundling museum where we have william hogarth's very great painting, the march to finchley, which shows the guards marching north to engage with bonnie prince charlie's army. so i would love that to be the case but the fact is, the plate is just not quite the right period and besides, gentlemen of the 18th century, they do tend to look rather similar. all i can say is that to a porcelain collector today, that is a little nugget. what's it worth? oh, i don't know. if you wanted to buy one of these in a london auction you would probably have to spend somewhere between £4,000 and £5,000 for it. oh. that's a lot for a plate, isn't it? it's a little trophy. well, you know, i only just stopped the cat jumping into the china cupboard the day before yesterday. and now, the china cupboard is shut. so that... have you thought of budgerie guards? i've got a parrot. on
